The guys over at Rowland's Office came up with these pitiful numbers about our second baseman, Kelly Johnson:

20 — Games since Kelly Johnson had an RBI hit.
17 – Games since Kelly got more than one hit in a game.
19 — Games since Kelly got 3 hits in a game.
4 — Hits by Martin Prado in his past 5 at-bats.
4 — Hits by Kelly in his past 35 at-bats.
7 — RBIs for Kelly in the season’s first 7 games.
8 — RBIs for Kelly in his past 26 games.
.203, .297, .138 — Kelly’s batting averages for the months of April, May and June.
2/12 — Kelly’s RBIs and total bases in June.
3/13 — Backup catcher David Ross’s RBIs and total bases in June.
220 — National Leaguers with better on base percentages than Kelly.
Jame Moyer — the person just ahead of Kelly on the NL OBP list.
Guess who’s starting at second tonight?

Yuck. But Bobby Cox just keeps trotting him out there every day hoping he will play his way out of his funk.
